Air Conditioner Replacement Timeframes in a Nutshell

Today we’re going to mainly focus on “the big day.” Up until that point, there are consultations to be had, product selections to be made, etc., and those all happen according to your availability and ours. But when it comes to the actual day of replacement, the real nitty gritty, you’ll probably be quite pleased with the answer: It should all get done in a single day.

Barring unusual circumstances, a standard air conditioning replacement can take as little as a few hours, maybe as much as 8-10 hours if the job is rough (odd ductwork, retrofitting, small space for installation, etc.). The time can be a bit more or a bit less depending on the system you install as well, which bears mentioning. For example:

  • Ductless cooling systems can be done within just a couple of hours because they exclude ductwork.
  • Type-to-type replacements, such as a central AC replacement, is often very quick because it’s a simple process to pull out an old system and rework the new one in.
  • Geothermal systems can take a good bit of time, depending. If you’re going from say central cooling to a GHP the job will involve piping and digging, which adds time.
